A snap survey reveals that Soweto and Alexandra have produced more great players in the PSL than any other location in South Africa.

Besides players, both townships have produced many shrewd football officials including PSL chairman Irvin Khoza and the late PSL life president Ntate Leepile Taunyane.

Kaizer Chiefs boss Kaizer Motaung and Jomo Cosmos owner Jomo Sono also hail from Orlando in Soweto.

In honour of these and other hubs for local football talent, KickOff.com has decided to put together a new series of township Dream Teams.

First up is the Soweto Dream Team, which will be followed weekly by the likes of Alexandra and other fertile areas around the country that have produced some of the nation's top footballers.
